Melbourne & The Great Ocean Road

To the land of street art, cafes and the Great Ocean Road! With a long weekend ahead of me I was excited to head back to Melbourne to explore. There is more to see outside of Hosier lane – let me tell you where to go for art, food and good vibes within the city.

Food & Vibes

  • Centre Place – Breakfast
  • Section 8 – Vibes & Beves

Now of course it is nice to see the Brighton Beach Boxes but personally I’d trade those any day for a drive on the Great Ocean Road. The views, the beaches the fish and chips shops! Around every corner there is a new surprise and at the end of the drive are the 12 (now 8) Apostles.

Rent a car and ditch the city, I tell you it’s worth it. Each of the below is between 30 mins to 2 hours from the last one so at the end of the day you only have a return drive of 3 – 4 hours.

  • Erskine Falls
  • Apollo Bay
  • Lorch Ard Gorge
  • 12 Apostles

One note of advice, drive the speed limit so you can avoid almost $1,000 in tickets… just saying.
